Our Take
The Super Smash Bros. series has been one of the most consistently enjoyable (and coveted) titles on Nintendo systems. I’ve got high hopes, not just as a fan, but as someone watching the sales of Wii U consoles. Every first-party release has a chance to nudge more units out the door, but Smash Bros., if marketing correctly to more casual fans, could be the killer app the system’s been waiting for.
